Replace Your Skull With Something From a 3-D Printer – Why Not?

First 3-D Printed Skull Successfully Implanted – MPR

A plastic skull printed using 3-D technology has been successfully implanted in a 22-year-old woman, replacing most of her own skull. The patient was suffering from thickening of the skull that was causing severe headaches, vision loss, and loss of motor coordination.The procedure was conducted in the Netherlands over 23 hours about three months ago and the patient is reporting that she is no longer experiencing headaches or vision problems. 

I can foresee some other uses….

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Yeah Baby! Replace my skull with something more impact resistant. Going head-on into that rock wall really sucked (I gots dents in my head), and wearing a helmet sucks almost as bad!
